“1Viktoria uses an emotive sketch style to create these minimalistic and abstract fashion illustrations. The subjects feel modern, and the pops of color create movement and add a touch of drama to each image. These stylish fashion illustrations can easily become compelling assets in your designs.”

“Along with telesniuk’s sets of sweeping cityscapes and creatively composed landmarks, you’ll find a rich collection of abstract architecture that’s a real treat for the eyes. From endless tunnels to the metal gridwork of building ceilings, these minimalistic abstractions will leave you dazzled with their disorientation.”
